|The ECIS adult award for the Promotion of International Education is available to all ECIS member schools. The award can be presented to a deserving adult (or group) in the school community for exemplary voluntary contributions which have helped to promote and enhance international education.
Although member schools have the opportunity to nominate a potential candidate annually, in order to maintain the prestigious level of recognition for which this award is intended, it is expected that this award will be presented sparingly, with considerable forethought, and only to those individuals or groups that have achieved the very highest level of service and dedication.
No more than one award per member school will be given annually. The award is given as an acknowledgement of exemplary contributions, service and/or innovations which have helped to promote international education and an understanding of world cultures.
The award recipient:
• must be an adult member of the school community who has attained at least 18 years of age with significant experience living and/or working in an international community and who has contributed exemplary voluntary service which has helped to promote international education. This could be demonstrated in any number of ways which may or may not include research, program development and implementation, or personal and public advocacy.
• should be an exemplary citizen who exhibits personal integrity, ethical professional practices, high personal expectations, a positive attitude and demeanour toward others, and seeks to understand and appreciate other cultures and educational programs.
• must have demonstrated the ability to excel at inspiring and leading others.
